MY CRY

When I warned about a new law in California that will force preachers to agree with the LGBTQ agenda, one lady commented, “The Church is awake and powerful in California.”  A brother responded, “Then why is California going to hell in a hand-basket?”  Ouch.

What I am about to say is a cry, a loving cry to the spiritual leaders of California: Wake up! Please consider what I am about to say, no matter how painful the facts may be.  I am speaking out of a deep love for California. I feel a heavy burden for my home State.

I survey the moral devastation, but then I hear someone boast that the gates of hell will not prevail against the church in California.  I have to ask, “If the gates of hell have not prevailed, then what on earth is going on?  If this isn’t prevailing, I’d hate to see what is!”  The answer, as is so often the case, is to read that verse again:

Matthew 16:18 “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

I am pleading with God for this message to get through to my fellow leaders.  The first clue to what God wants, lies in the phrase, “I will build MY church.”  The problem is that there are two construction projects going on simultaneously in the church: Men are in charge of one, and Christ is in charge of the other.

That these two branches coexist in the Body of Christ is clear in Jesus’ own words:  John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.”

Both branches are connected to Him, but only one abides in Him.  Both will grow side by side until the appointed time.  It is easy to tell the difference: The churches that men are building don’t stand a chance against Satan, and Satan doesn’t stand a chance against the Church Christ is building. 

Man-made churches avoid the front line, while the one true Church that Jesus is building draws its life from engaging and defeating the powers of darkness.

The church man builds refuses to offend.  The Church that Christ is building refuses to be ashamed.

It totally breaks my heart to say this, but, California is littered with Christian projects that were built by man, and for man.  This explains how immorality has spread like a cancer, even as churches got bigger. It explains why the government in California is working so hard to ban Christianity.

It makes me weep to have to say this, but I must. Paul leveled a stern warning to all who build “for God,” but do so by their own design.  1 Corinthians 3:10 “According to the grace of God which was given to me, as a wise master builder, I have laid the foundation and another builds on it. But let each one take heed how he builds on it. 11 For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

Beloved, there is a terrifying outcome for those who have built mega-churches that God had no part in establishing.  They will all stand before God and be judged for their works.  1 Corinthians 3:12 “Now if anyone builds on this foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, 13 each one’s work will become clear; for the Day will declare it, because it will be revealed by fire; and the fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is. 14 If anyone’s work which he has built on it endures, he will receive a reward. 15 If anyone’s work is burned, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.”

Beloved, the autopsy on California leaves no room for another verdict!

Let everyone who reads this heed the warning!  There are disastrous things about building Christian projects by human power that aren’t readily apparent.

For starters, these man-made churches persecute the true Church in a way that is worse than the world does.  How? By you as the pastor of a church built on a foundation of wood, hay, and straw making Bible preaching offensive. By you who have given believers an appetite for fast food. By discouraging true pastors who feel foolish for holding fast to their convictions. You have left them feeling betrayed when you steal their people, and herd them into a faceless mega-crowd, where they no longer have any accountability.

I am praying right now that my cry will be understood by leaders. I am travailing for leaders to wake up while there is still time.

But, there is an even more hideous fact you need to face: Satan may actually be helping you build your artificial church!  He may even supply the money to build it.  A hundred million dollars is chump change to the enemy of God, if it gets him the prize he seeks: building a powerless center, where thousands can be disarmed and neutralized.

My precious brothers and sisters let me ask you: What could be a better trophy for hell than producing an artificial church?  It has all the right features, but no power.  It is the perfect distraction.  The devil can freely defile a culture in plain view of the church and she will be too powerless, self-satisfied, and oblivious to stop it.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ: If this describes your church, get out!  If you are the pastor of such a church, get back to preaching the pure word of God and making true disciples, before it is too late. Get right with God, and begin to turn California back from the abyss!

 

 

 

Trump is right

Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer could not be more wrong or cold-blooded on this issue. Trump is right to declare a national emergency to build the wall.  It should outrage every believer and American to hear Pelosi and Schumer call this a manufactured crisis.

They said this front of millions of Americans and thousands of people who lost loved ones to murderers–murderers who had no right roaming among innocent Americans. Murderers that Nancy and Chuck still protect.

What is truly cold-blooded is that they know they are lying. They know that we know they are lying. They stand there embalmed of all human decency and robotically reel off their talking points.

No compassion. Not even a nod to those whose husbands, wives, sons, daughters, moms and dads were taken from them. Women were raped, beaten to death with a hammer—neighbors shot, beheaded, dismembered—a young police officer shot and killed the day after Christmas by a man who could not be arrested in Nancy’s home sanctuary state of California. Most of them killed Americans after several arrests and deportations.

The real victims, according to Nancy and Chuck, are the federal workers who  didn’t get paid during the shutdown.   But they will get their money back.  However, none of the real victims of the crisis will ever get their loved ones back.

What kind of a mind can draw a moral equivalence between a family that has lost a loved one to murder and a worker who at worst had their paycheck delayed? That is the manufactured crisis.

The smug, dismissive, intelligence insulting tone, of leftist leaders confirms the fear that our nation is run by an elite class.  The are demagogues who deem themselves above any accountability or the rule of law.  An elite class that themselves, live behind walls and are guarded by men with the guns, the same guns they want to take away from us. This elite class is served by everything from the media, to late night sock puppet hosts, and Hollywood.

What you see should enrage you. They are telling you it’s okay for the killing and looting to go on–that they don’t accept Trump’s facts–facts backed up by those who enforce the law and work at the border.

Schumer and Pelosi believe they decide the facts. They issue the only reality we are allowed to believe. They told you that you are too stupid and unworthy to draw any other conclusion than the official one that we give you.  Look closely at their expression it says, “when we want your opinion, we’ll give it to you.”

Trump is a true outsider. That is the root of all the hatred toward him. He shocked the denizens of the Washington swamp by actually keeping his promise. We all know that Chuck and Nancy voted for the wall but only changed their minds because Trump won. They have no motive but hate. They have no plan but to oust Trump.

The wall must be built not just for national security but for national sanity. At some point the people need to see the president they elected exercise the platform that won him that election. If ever a man needed to hold his ground on a matter it is Donald Trump. Do not give in Mr. President. Never!

You are right to declare a state of emergency for two reasons: 1. Drugs and killers are pouring in through the border costing us countless lives. 2. Democrats will let the disaster go on no matter what the cost in lives, so long as they can expand their voter base with illegals. Both are true national emergencies.

A Dream Over California

I told the Lord I wanted to reach America. I immediately felt this in my spirit, “Then you must reach California.”

Five years ago, while preaching in Stockton, I had a vivid dream—the kind where you don’t know if you are awake or asleep.  I saw Highway 99. I saw it from Red Bluff all the way to Southern California. This artery of the great central valley is special to God. In the dream I saw a river—Ezekiel’s river flowing with great healing properties, trees of righteousness on both banks. The voice in my dream said, “This is a corridor of glory.”

I did not understand why I was getting this dream. It was hidden in the Spirit until just recently. It portends a miracle of a magnitude I can’t fathom. Especially when you consider the condition of Sacramento, Silicon Valley and Hollywood.

At this moment, these bastions of California have declared war—war on the Federal Government—war on the church, and has even declared war on science. For that matter, it has declared war on anyone or anything that disagrees with their radical agenda.

How far gone are California leftists? At his own inauguration, Governor Gavin presented neither a vision nor a plan for the nation state—he simply flew into a rant against President Trump and emphasized that California is a total sanctuary state.

Silicon Valley alone possesses power that boggles the mind. This bastion of technology and social media controls information like no other agency on earth. Right now, social media is an unchallenged mouthpiece to billions for leftist atheists.

Their power to brainwash young minds is beyond staggering. They have the power to shut down any voice they wish—and the voices they shut down are notably Christian, conservative, and patriotic. Facebook shut down Franklin Graham! If that doesn’t give you a chill, nothing will. If they won’t hesitate to silence the chief voice of Evangelical Christianity…what will they do to the rest of us?

California Assembly Bill 2943 has been delayed. It’s the bill that will ban the Bible by coming in through the back door. It means to ban any literature that suggests help for a gay lifestyle.

Faith doesn’t matter, fact doesn’t matter, science doesn’t matter and now, outcome doesn’t matter either. Sacramento politicians are one big never mind. Never mind that California is dead last in education and a slew of other quality of life categories. Never mind that they are spending like a thief with a stolen credit card. Never mind that innocent people are murdered by illegals they protect from being arrested.

California politicians, tech moguls, Hollywood and media have made an unmistakable declaration. They will remake America in the miserable and decrepit image of California. The are the black hole that can suck a nation into its abyss.

 

What can we possibly do about all this? What we do is put our natural mind aside and obey God!  What God says will stand. What God commands will triumph over the enemy. Never forget that California has been the catalyst to historic revivals and has launched worldwide Christian ministries. Those wells are still in the heart of California.

That dream has lain dormant in my spirit until now, when God said, “If you want to reach America, you must reach California.”

Here and now, I am announcing to you Living Proof California. Living Proof will follow the route I saw in my dream. We will set up our tent in key cities starting in the north and working our way south along Highway 99.

If you live in or near the cities of Paradise, Marysville, Sacramento, Modesto, Turlock, Los Banos, Fresno, and Bakersfield listen carefully: the tent is coming to a site near you.

It all begins in March in Marysville and will continue south like a mighty river of healing and salvation. Will these crusades turn California around? That is totally in God’s hands. What I do know is the Lord will hit demons hard in California. All we can do, and must do, is obey the voice of God.”

I am asking you to obey God by starting to pray right now. Pray for favor to finalize our permits on the very best sites. Pray for the workers to come into the harvest. Pray for protection as we expect high resistance from the enemy. Pray for abundant provision because we will be investing massive amounts of money to make this invasion possible.

The urgent message of this newsletter is this: The best way to touch America right now is to invade California. I couldn’t understand that at first, but now I do. It is the way of God to take the fight directly to the main threat.  I am hoping, with a great hope, that you will see this.

Acts 4:29-30 says, “Now Lord Behold their threats and grant to your servants that with all boldness they may preach Your word while you stretch out Your hand to heal and let signs and wonders be done in the name of Your Holy Son Jesus.”

California is a great threat to America. This state may have deep perversion and intellectual arrogance, but none of these things can withstand the mighty power of God. The Holy Spirit is at work to empower and guide a mighty invasion of California’s Central Valley. Pray! Get involved.  No matter where or what country you live in…you can pray! I feel a miracle on the horizon.  Click the link  below if you want to be a part of Living Proof California!  Details coming soon!

I want to be a part of Living Proof California

WE DON’T START TILL SUNDAY AT 6 PM!

God has already started.  Never have I seen a meeting with this level of anticipation.  The wisdom of the location was utterly confirmed today. “What is this?”  Again, and again we got that question from passersby.  After Joshua Olmos answered one man, he said, I run a recovery home just blocks from here.  I am going to bring everyone in the home to this tent.”

Meanwhile our ringing phones tell another part of the story.  People are braving great distances to be at this meeting—flying in from thousands of miles away—believing for a miracle.

Univision and Spanish radio carry the message of this tent meeting to the Hispanic community.   Pastor Cesar Minera has thrown his considerable influence in the city behind Living Proof Reno.

THE CREW FROM INNER CITY ACTION STOCKTON LAYS OUT THE FLOOR.

This Sunday Morning, the powerful congregation at Spirit Filled Church with Pastor Roger Canary will let me deliver the final marching orders to the army of God.

Is this my last chance to invite you?  Our Living Proof tent crusade starts this Sunday September 23rd at 6PM and then 7PM Monday through Friday September 28th.   Are we expecting many to be saved and healed?  You better believe it!

But here’s the most urgent part of my message to you: Three things will decide the magnitude of this meeting:

1.Prayer: God has chosen to work when we ask. This is the foundation for everything. 

2. The personal invitation: Technology has changed but one thing remains constant…people come because you bring them.

3. Overcoming the myth of distance. I want to spend a extra time on this one. People carried their sick loved ones for days to get to Jesus.  They still do in underdeveloped countries.  Do you live near Reno? I mean within 150 miles.  What is 150 miles in a car when there is the possibility of a miracle?

Mark 6: 55 says, “they ran through that whole surrounding region and began to carry about on beds those who were sick to wherever they heard He was.” That last phrase says it all!

Under the tent, there will be wonderful music, powerful messages and surprises.  But, the greatest reason to bring people is because we know Jesus will be there.

P.S. All seats are free.  Remember, we’ll start at 6 PM on Sunday and at 7 PM Monday-Friday.  Let’s us pray for those you are bringing for healing or deliverance.  Call us at 775 238 3473   MM

Preach as if they are stealing your country

Are you preaching to what your people actually face?  Their faith is costing them their jobs.  Their children are being persecuted at school.  Their college is banning their Christian clubs.
When they tell us they want to silence the church—when they tell us their opinion is the only one allowed—when disagreeing will cost you your rights, your job, and even your life—when they burn buildings, protect killers, and convict innocent people—the church should have no response?  Do we sit back and just give away our freedom of religion and speech?
Liberals want a New American Civil War.  They want one party rule.  They say the Republican Party, and Evangelical Christians must be stripped of power.  They want to make America into California.
Peter Leyden, CEO of new media startup Reinvent, and Ruy Teixeira, Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress, said this in an article entitled The Great Lesson of California in America’s New Civil War.
They say, “What about the need for checks and balances?  Many Americans might be wary of trusting a political environment where one party has complete control of political power.”
They insist that one party rule is an utter necessity: “America can’t afford more political paralysis. One side or the other must win. This is a civil war that can be won without firing a shot. But it is a fundamental conflict between two worldviews that must be resolved in short order.”  Are these wacko ideas from the fringe?  No, they are mainstream leftist ideology.  We are in a moral civil war.  How shall we preach in moral civil war?
There is a story of tyranny that is our model for this moment.  Terrorists took control of a city and demanded that the entire city become slaves or face death.  It gets worse.  Just to stay alive every man, woman, and child had to agree to have their right eye removed.
The elders of the city begged for them to hold off 7 days so they could send messengers to get help.  Since the terrorists were spoiling for a fight they agreed.
1 Samuel 11:3 is one of the most chilling verses in scripture because it shows the unimaginable horror the people felt: “Then the elders of Jabesh said to him, ‘Hold off for seven days, that we may send messengers to all the territory of Israel.  And then, if there is no one to save us, we will come out to you.’”
Put yourself in the place of those men facing the disfigurement of their wives and children.  If you were one of those elders tasked with choosing messengers—what kind of messengers would you choose?  Who would you choose to go get help?
You would not pick smooth talking salesmen.  You would not want a wordsmith or an entertainer.  You dare not send a psychologist or a life coach.
They had to go get an army.  They had to make people cry and get angry.  They had to convince people—who might believe this was not their fight—to take a stand.
The Bible says they went to Gibeah where King Saul was, and everyone who heard them began to weep.  King Saul was filled with holy rage and galvanized the nation to save the people of Jabesh Gilead in a mighty victory.
Who will save us from the disfigurement of America, and the church, by the left?  What kind of preaching shall we choose to loosen the grip of tyranny and regain our freedom?  The same kind of messengers the elders of Jabesh Gilead choose.
The Holy Spirit is leading preachers to adjust to the new, real world.  He is sending out an urgent appeal: Preach as if they are stealing your country…because they are.  Preach as if your people are suffering under persecution because they are.  If you have the heart, God will give you the words.  Time is running out.

It’s just not right

There is no version of kneeling during the national anthem that is right.  Of course, you have the right to do it, but it is just not right.  I raised my son to know the difference between civil and moral law—to know what you have a right to do—and the right thing to do.

It’s just not right

By Mario Murillo

There is no version of kneeling during the national anthem that is right.  Of course, you have the right to do it, but it is just not right.  I raised my son to know the difference between civil and moral law—to know what you have a right to do—and the right thing to do.

Men, you have the right to leave your wife of 30 years, hook up with a bimbo and ignore your children for the rest of your life.  It’s just not right.  You have the right to look at porn but it’s just not right.  You have the right to drop F bombs in front of women, cut in line, and pass gas in an elevator.  It’s just not right.

You kneelers, in the NFL are clueless about how you look.  You have no idea how deeply you have offended tens of millions of Americans of all races.  You can’t image how impossible it is—for any reasonable, hard-working American—to see you coddled, multi-millionaires, as oppressed victims.

But Mario, I am trying to bring attention to injustice and racism.  For real?  By attacking the very symbol of our fight against those things?  By doing it in front the families whose loved ones  paid with their lives to defend the flag?

You have have not shown how, such a mindless offensive act, advances the cause of racial justice.  The only conversation you have started is about boorish behavior.  Of course, the usual suspects on the left will hail your tantrums.  They want chaos no matter what package it arrives in. 

And of course, you are darlings of the entertainment industry who are so delirious with Trump derangement syndrome that any shot at the president is welcomed. 

Don’t let the current fever fool you.  When it all settles, and God-fearing, patriotic Americans get their say, and reason prevails, you, the cheese will stand alone.  So let me ask you:

-If it is police brutality you are targeting why not kneel in front a police station? 

-If lives are what you care about, how about kneeling in front of a crack house?

-If lives matter then kneel to the reality of devastating black on black violence.

Even the near-sighted can see how many of you “protest” in the bubble of celebrity, and then escape in fine cars to your mansions.

Yes, I give Jerry Jones, owner of the Dallas Cowboys half credit—but his act of kneeling with the players before the anthem is like the parent that says, “I know you are going to smoke, so let’s smoke together on the porch.”

Senator Dan Quayle once compared himself to John F. Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States during a debate with Senator Lloyd Bentsen.  Bentsen replied, “Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.

I lived in Berkeley in the 70’s I saw true protesters with true courage force the nation to face issues.  They sacrificed.  I knew these protesters and you kneelers…are not those protesters.

THE LAZARUS GENERATION

God has called me to build an army out the forgotten souls in America’s inner cities.  Up from graves in America’s forgotten communities, they will rise to become Satan’s worst nightmare.  I can prove it! 
Today’s victims will be tomorrow’s treasure.  The people no church wants will become the people every church wants.
Today they stick needles in their arms—tomorrow, they will be filled with the Holy Ghost, and the hand of God extended.  Today, they sell their bodies in grinding despair—tomorrow they will be shining temples of God.  Today, they scavenge dumpsters for food—tomorrow they will walk in dignity, boldness and prosperity.  Society’s rejects are about to become royalty.
They will turn the heart of many Americans back to God.  Their testimony will expose the lie of secular progressivism.  The leftist media will have no weapon against them. 
The Lazarus Generation cannot be bought off, seduced away, or distracted from their appointed goal. 
Yesterday, the powers of darkness panicked over news out of Reno Nevada.  A plan that was hidden in the heart of God—a powerful weapon that was forged before the foundation of the earth—came into existence.

Because of this, you will now see awe-inspiring soul winning events.  The poor are going to get food, shelter, clothing—and yes—jobs.  Gang members, addicts and the homeless will be drawn in record numbers to atmospheres of open heaven right where they live.
The first rumblings of this massive lightning storm, came in Modesto last week.  Star of David Ministries hosted Mario Murillo Ministries and Frank Saldana of Inner City Action to do a tent meeting in the hood. 

Pastor Frank & Kim Saldana

Since 1996, Pastor Frank And Kim Saldana have served on a full-time basis. Having began their ministry work in Manteca, CA, the impact of their love for people has touched thousands over the past 20 years of service in the community.

Pastor Frank & Kim have been married over 20 years. They founded Inner City Action Inc to meet the needs of those that are often, ignored, neglected and forgotten. They are passionate about bringing awareness, education and change. They are dedicated to reaching and restoring our struggling communities.

We all had the strange and wonderful sense that this was a rehearsal for something gigantic.  The gifts of MMM and Inner City Action blended effortlessly.  The gaping holes in our outreach were filled dramatically by their expertise.  It was simply meant to be.

MMM received an amazing gift from Rick Wiles and TRUNEWS.  Rick donated a brand-new tent and 1,000 luxury folding chairs—he even paid for 2 semi-trucks to haul it from Vero Beach to Reno. 

Here we sat with a huge gift we did not know how to use.  Frank and Inner-City Impact have a tent crew!  The chairs were stuffed into a storage area that wiped out our storage.  Frank has a 20,000-square foot warehouse!   You can see where this is all heading.
So, we met in Reno to formalize the obvious.  We needed to team up, combine forces and touch cities across America.  We will provide a Living Proof Crusade.  They will provide the mechanics of transporting the tent, set up and take down.   We will recruit and train soul winners to join us in each city.  They will bring trained workers to go door to door giving the poor food, and many other basic needs.  
After we nailed down 8 Cities for the next 12 months, Frank and his crew loaded our new tent and chairs and took them to Stockton. 
Never, and I mean never have I seen a vision whose inevitable outcome is revival—national revival. 
Both ministries remain independent ministries with unique callings but for these tent invasions we will unite hearts, and pool our gifts, talents and resources to have an overwhelming impact on many cities.
I have no doubt that days of massive harvest, towering signs and wonders, and revival are just ahead.  Stay tuned we are about to announce Merced, and Fresno California!
